Mortal Kombat 11 - Shaggy - Scooby Doo - Netherrealm

We all know the internet, someone lights a spark and the whole internet is set ablaze à la gaming internet sensation of 2018, Bowsette. This time, however, a fan petitioned the idea of Mortal Kombat 11 developer, Netherrealm, dipping into the reservoir of its parent company, Warner Bros., to bring Scooby-Doo’s lackadaisical companion to the MK11 roster. That idea alone sparked a wide fan reaction that has since garnered the attention of Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon and Matthew Lillard, the actor who portrayed Shaggy in the live-action films.

At first, Ed Boon offered a rather salty response.

But then, everything started to go upwards from there. Boon circled back on the idea with an interesting depiction of Shaggy as a seemingly immortal badass ready to defy the odds in kombat against the denizens of earthrealm, netherrealm, and even the elder gods. Zoinks, indeed.

Fans took to social media far and wide to react to this hilarious idea. Many on Twitter were on board already imagining Shaggy unleashed in a Mortal Kombat arena. Admist all the the social media fuss, one response outshined the rest. That was none other than Shaggy himself, Matthew Lillard. Here’s what he had to say in response to the original artist.

Does Shaggy really stand much of a chance of being added to the Mortal Kombat 11 roster? Probably not. But if past Mortal Kombat and Injustice DLC characters like Jason Voorhees, Hellboy, and even the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are any indication, we should never say never. I can’t even imagine what a Shaggy Fatality might look like. But it’d certainly have to involve his pal, Scoob. It seems to me like Shaggy’s finishers should probably all be a variety of Frienships. But this is just a crazy mixed up world we’re living in, and who am I to call the shots? For now, we can only dream.

Would you like to see Shaggy as a kombatant? What other crazy ideas can we throw at the wall hoping something sticks?  Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
